St Mary’s, North Witham, has a Norman chancel arch and north and south doorways.

The chancel is Early English, the tower Perpendicular. The chancel contains fine monuments to the extinct Sherard family of nearby Lobthorpe.

Unfortunately the church is locked with no keyholder information.

The south doorway is much plainer than the north though from the same twelfth century period.
